Question about Philips DVD640 DVD Player

Open Question

PHILIPS DVD 640/021

It plays very few DVD’S, and this happen after numerous “INSERT” and “EJECT” commands. Usually after some time I get the message “NO DISK”
It plays a significant larger number of VCD’S inserted. Maybe the 30% of them. Same amount of MUSIC CD’S.
All DVD’S and VCD’S are in good shape and able to play in a cheap Chinese DVD player.
Lens cleaning done with no success.
Thank you.
Andreas.

You can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-888-744-5477. Tell them while using the disc player the unit failed to eject the disc and ask the for a way to solve the problem. It is best to talk to them in this case as the solution will involve a opening of the unit to figure out what has malfunctioned to cause this problem. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

SOURCE: my dvd palyer shows NO DISC for any disc i want to play.

the laser is probably no good or the tiny motor that spins the disc is no good.there is a clamper assembly that goes in the hole in the disc.turn it and see if it spins freely.there is a bronze bushing on the top of the motor driving it ,and a small drop of light oil on the bearing will make it work again if it is gummed up..if the motor does not get the disc speed from 250 to 600rpm,fast,the laser does generate the proper info and the computer says error.yes the motors can be replaced,but the cost is as much as a new one

Hi I am vortash I think you may just need a cd CD cleaner to cure your problem , most people overlook that DVD's need to be cleaned now and again as dust collects on the laser lens and sometimes just need cleaning ,
Get yourself a cd disk cleaner one that has both a fabric felt side for polishing the lens and a brush side for cleaning it ... Regards Vortash

SOURCE: my phillips 5.1 dvd player not playing dvd disc, only playing vcd

the laser lens on the optical pickup is dirty or scratched. to clean: buy a disk cleaner and use it per instructions. if it doesn't help, you can do it manually. remove the top, remove the top off of the disk assembly (you may have to remove the whole assembly first) until you see the lens. be careful with the cables and wires. use a lint-free swab (not a q-tip and not your finger), gently wipe off the lens. replace the covers and test. if it still doesn't work, it may be scratched or damaged. in which case, it needs to be replaced.

I had the same problem. It would not release the DVD because it was not ready. What worked for me, was to insert a VHS Movie and play it for a few seconds, than stop it using the remote, then Eject with the remote, and then after removing the Tape, I pressed the Open/DVD button on the unit and now it worked, it released the DVD

Hi,

Friends i have seen thousand of laptop cd/dvd rom stops working very soon. then the quesion is how you do intall your os if it was corrupted.
follow my tip and install windows7 or vista in very simple way.

a) first insert your usb flash drive or hdd in usb port
b) then open commandprompt from accessories with rightclick run as administrator
c) you must know what is drive letter of your usb flash drive.
d) type DISKPART in command prompt and press enter
e) then type LISTDISK in command prompt
f) Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.

So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:

SELECT DISK 1

CLEAN

SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE

FORMAT FS=NTFS

(Format process may take few seconds)

ASSIGN

EXIT

g) Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).

h) Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:

D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

i) Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.

BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
J) Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.

Eject the usb drive and select first boot device usb drive or usb hdd in motherboards bios.

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :


usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

DVD DOOR AND VCR DOOR WILL NOT OPEN, DOES NOT EJECT TAPES OR DISK


I have had some luck in unplugging the machine for five or ten and then trying again. I have spent five to ten minutes trying to get the darn thing to spit out the disk and it refuses. Unplugging either gives me time to cool off or it helps the machine :)

CAnt eject DVD disc. Get message ''blocked'' Machine will play the DVD but when I try to eject nothing happens other than the message. What size lump hammer should I use?


if you want to just get the disc out there should be a tiny hole on the front of the drive where you can insert a paper clip firmly to eject the drive.

I would also check the rubber band / cogs by taking a look inside and see if there are any issues.

Also if you reboot do you get the same problem ?

hi try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your DVD player with an original DVD, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.

After approx 1/2 hour of play the movie gets stuck for few seconds, plays again for 2-10 seconds, then permanently gets stuck. Sometimes a smack to the machine works, ff does not work....we usually just...


Smacking the machine is a good way to destroy the DVD lens. Get a CD/DVD lens cleaner and make sure there aren't any marks on the disk. Dirt & smudges cause about 75% of all CD/DVD player problems.
